My daughter wants to learn how to poach fruit so we are having pork chops with poached peaches for dinner and the only side dish she really likes to make is risotto so she wants to make that too.

Trader Joe's gluten-free hot dogs, gluten-free buns, carrot/broccoli/apple salad, salt-free potato chips (got to watch that DH), grapes, and Talenti raspberry gelato for dessert.

The low-iodine thing is killing me.

Sauteed summer squash with vegetable-style tempe & dulce (seaweed) with a tamari/sun-dried tomato sauce over quinoa

and marinated cucumber dill salad

Most meals in my house are vegetarian as well as gluten-free. I'm wondering if there would be enough interest to start a 'what's for dinner' thread for vegetarians? Or is that subgroup just too small, and I should look out for veg meals here? I do love this thread!

Although I am definitely not vegetarian, I have made some pretty intriguing spanky vegetarian dishes so I would be interested in a veg thread! :)

I was inspired by Love2Travels posts, so tonight we had Horseradish crusted cod with carmelized onion balsamic jus & lemon basil infusion on a bed of mashed postatoes. It was amazingly good, and just from a couple of pieces of thawed out cod.

OMG. Adapted from this recipe if anyone's interested.

http://lakemagazine.com/recipes/recipedetail.asp?id=LKRID-11252003484-PM48R

(I didn't have sage, wasn't sure about how to split a whole bulb of garlic, so peeled and smashed 4-5 big cloves, used chives instead of shallots, 1 egg and an egg white since I test positive for yolk allergy, used rice vinegar vs. red wine vinegar and used horeseradish from a jar vs. fresh root.) My partner had two portions and said he felt like he just had a $50 meal on his own, declared me iron chef. (Do you think he's trying to encourage me?) :D

I have leftover balsamic syrup. My girlfriend serves that with pizza. I'm thinking about trying the gluten-free Bisquick pizza crust tomorrow.

That's awesome, Marilyn! I just love balsamic syrup and use it on all kinds of things - basting quail, drizzling over rib eye, even on ice cream! Also yummy drizzled over grilled or roasted vegetables.

I have been unwell lately so have not been cooking, unfortunately, but miss it like mad! Hopefully tomorrow I will be at it again as I have some fabulous meals lined up...

It was long day at work, not liking my new school too much, but trying! So I'm having wine, soy free chocolate chips, Cape Code gluten-free kettle low fat chips(makes me feel better to eat so much) with avocado. I was healthy all dy, I'm going to veg!

I made Greek Pizza with the gluten-free Biscuit recipe. The best thing that I can say about it is that it made the house smell good. :lol:

Next time add in 1/2 cup of Kraft Parmesean cheese ( in the shaker can ) to the crust mixture before baking. It makes a HUGE HUGE difference.

I, too, add all sorts of yummy things to my crust including Parmesan and all sorts of fresh herbs and roasted garlic. Heck, sometimes I even add caramelized onions or shallots.

Not dinner, but I just made this crustless quiche for brunch. It was REALLY good. We had it with Rudi's toast and some fresh fruit.

http://www.food.com/recipe/crustless-bacon-spinach-swiss-quiche-low-carb-209249

I used 1/2 an onion and it was good. I think a whole one would be overkill. Be sure to squeeze excess water out of the spinach and it took more like 40-45 minutes to bake.

Frost is in our forecast for tonight so we will be picking all our vegetables except carrots as they like frost. So, we are having:

Big Salad Night

- butterhead lettuce, baby beet and arugula leaves, red carrots, juicy tomatoes (several of them weigh over 1 lb each) and fresh herbs with a chipotle vinaigrette I am making with dried toasted and re-constituted chipotles, orange juice, pomegranate molasses, etc. and toasted almonds for crunch. Oh, and some fried capers for a bit of puckery crunchy goodness and homemade cornbread croutons. I want to have artisan garlic herb cheese from a near-by farm (made with sheep's milk) but am not doing dairy yet.

There is something so special and gratifying about eating what you grow yourself. :)

The last of the Chocolate Marquise with Raspberry Coulis for dessert.

    • His diabetes educator is not an expert in celiac. IMHO the lets wait 3 months is cruel and unneeded.  Ask his GP if he will give the 'formal' diagnosis if you put him on the diet and those numbers go down with retesting in a few months.  Or ask for an immediate referral to a GI doctor knowledgeable in celiac. With numbers like that there really is no doubt about his need for the diet.
    • You finally know what has been slowly and painfully killing you. Recovery will not be quick but it will come. You will find yourself running up the stairs in 6 months and will sit sobbing at the top for half an hour. It will be about 5 years and lots of PT before you will walk normally again but not long ago you remodeled the bathroom because you were told you would be in a wheelchair soon. The nightly agonizing hours in the bathroom will be replaced with a solid eight hours sleep now except when you accidentally get glutened. Those glutening will come farther and farther apart though as you get better at the lifestyle.  It seems like there is nothing you can eat right now but that will change as more folks are diagnosed and more foods become better labeled.  Your skin will heal and your hair will grow back. That early gray isn't going away but eventually you will prefer it to having to dye it every three weeks or so because it now grows faster than it has at any time in your life. You will have lots of times that you feel sorry for yourself but a quick trip to look at that tackle box full of meds you no longer need will be a comfort. You will have some residual damage even years later but nothing you can't handle. You will be able to work again and to go back and finish those degrees but you will go back to school too soon. Don't be too hard on yourself as a couple years after that you will have recovered enough to take and pass those classes. Your life isn't over with this diagnosis it is just going to be different. But it will be a better different without the pain and moodiness. Eventually your family will understand and stop the eyerolls because they will see you healing. It will be hard socially but your social life was always tough anyway.  The important thing is you will get your health back and that is more important than grabbing a quick meal at a take out joint. Hang in there.
    • I can understand doctors being cautious and wanting certainty before diagnosing a youngster with a lifelong condition that will limit their already limited dietary choices. Even so, his figures seem to make a very strong case and I wonder what their rationale is for waiting 3 months? That seems to be time that could be better spent getting him healthier on a gluten-free diet. I wonder if you can ask them what clinical advantages the delay will bring? Either it could speed the process along, or at least you'd get a better understanding of why they advocate a delay? 
    • He had the dpg igg as well. That came back at 50, normal is under 20.   It's the waiting that is hard and the reluctance of Drs to diagnose. His diabetes educator has already said they won't pay attention to those results for 3 months and then they'll test again. If they're still high they will look at the next steps. Gp seems a bit more ready to proceed now so hopefully he will get the referral sorted so we can have a definite answer before too long. 
    • You find a magic typewriter in an old musty box in the attic. It will allow you to write a message to yourself on the day that you found out you had celiac (or gluten sensitivity etc). You can include anything you've learned about yourself, handling celiac, good strategies for coping, how to deal with emotional issues, hostile reactions from friends and family, travel, work, dating. etc.  You may not include details of who won the World Series / next weeks lottery numbers etc as this would break the space time continuum and the typewriter will give you a nasty shock if you even try it, so just keep to the celiac insights.
